Dr. Lonnie Smith and Lionel Loueke

The turban-clad master of the hammond B3 organ, Dr. Lonnie Smith who “remains remarkably cliché–free, even after five decades in the game….” (John Fordham, The Guardian) will be performing in the same operating room with two different groups. Hailed as a “gentle virtuoso” by Jon Pareles of The New York Times, guitarist/vocalist Lionel Loueke will join the doctor's trio for two nights - this colaboration is a not-to-be-missed event. Dr. Lonnie Smith's "In The Beginning" Octet combines veteran play­ers like guitarist Ed Cherry with fiery younger musicians such as trumpeter Andy Gravish and saxopho­nists John Ellis and Ian  Hendrickson–Smith. In the fall of 2013, the group released a superb two–CD set, In The Beginning, Volumes 1 & 2, on the artist’s own Pilgrimage Recordings. Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio includes Jonathan Kreisberg on guitar and  Johnathan Blake on drums perform with  special guest  Lionel Loueke on guitar on Thursday and Friday, April 17th and 18th and his Octet performs on Friday and Saturday, April 19th and 20th at the Jazz Standard.
